Why We Thugs Lyrics - Ice Cube

Review The Song (22)



[Intro]
Yeah
Every hood's the same [2X]
Come on

[Chorus]
They give us guns and drugs
Then wonder why in the fuck we thugs
They wanna count the slugs
Then come around here and fuck with us (Uh huh)
They give us guns and drugs
Then wonder why in the fuck we thugs
They wanna count the slugs
Then come around here and fuck with us

[Verse 1]
I'm from the land of the gang bang
Since I was little, ain't a god damn thang changed
sponsored links
It's the same ol same
Bush run shit like Sadaam Hussien
I cock and aim, clinically insane
To deal with this bullshit day to day
If I sell some yay or smoke some hay
You bitches wanna throw me up in pelican's bay
Call me an animal up in the system
But who's the animal that built this prison
Who's the animal that invented lower living
The projects, thank god for Russell Simmons
Thank god for Sugarhill
I'm putting a different kind of steel up to my grill
Y'all know what it is, scared for your own kids
How these ghetto niggaz taken over showbiz

[Chorus]

[Verse 2]
It's boyz in the hood, it's toys in the hood
Y'all wanna know why there's noise in the hood
Cause there's drugs in the hood, thugs in the hood
Nigga killed a crip and a blood in the hood (For real)
Cause when niggaz get tribal
It's all about survival, nobody liable
I got caught by five-oh
Grandmama came to court with her Bible
But when the judge hit the gavel
Now I'm too far from my family to travel (Fuck)
I just came unraveled
Socked the D.A. before I got gaffled
Owned by C.A, State Property
Just like the year fifteen fifty three
Looking for me, a one-way ticket out
Don't understand, what's so hard to figure out?

[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
(Damn) I can't take the pressure
Pulled the fo-fo up out the dresser
Grabbed the weight up out the closet
Po-po coming but I'm scared to toss it
Y'all know what happened last time I lost it
Can't tell you niggaz what the fucking boss did
The game got a nigga exhausted
Gotta go for the plea bargain they offered
Twenty years for what?
Breaking these laws that's so corrupt
Taking these halls and filling 'em up
Some powder keg shit that's about to erupt
Ay y'all, I'm about to be stuck
Until the year two thousand, what the fuck?
In the hood, don't press your luck
Cause these motherfuckers will set you up, word up

[Chorus]

[Outro]
Every hood's the same [3X]
Every hood's the same [2X]
Stop tripping on it
Every hood's the same [3X]
Every hood's the same [2X]

Its not beacuse we want to its because we have to money makes the world go round, but we dont have it. i see yall anonymous PUSSY's if have some to say look me up and pray i dont find you. DERRICK PORCHAY! P.S. yall dont know what we have been through



truth | Reviewer: cube | 2/26/11

there is a few racist mofos up in here!
Every hood in the ghetto is the same because of the system!!!
Laws are made by the rich and powerful who, obviously, don't want the people from below to take over. Instead they feed the poor minorities with drugs and guns. The poor are more likely to be black because of racism. The poor are more marginalized with bullshit laws who later gives them a home called the prison. Why build prisons when they won't solve problems? The poor are scapegoats of society, unfortunately.

Overall, great song! it speaks the truth.



Its à good song | Reviewer: Rich White Male | 12/25/10

Good song about how you poor Black people live; Lets keep it that way. And yes i Am à racist but as long i Am wealthy i dont care about you slaves, THE only thing you good for is cleaning my shoes. Up yours



Why we thugs | Reviewer: kip. | 10/2/10

I like this song but I do not agree with some of the comments from people of my color(black). I agree that our reality is fucked up; that we always have to fight it off every fucking day. However, we cannot come off it if we idle around and let the past control our lives;we need to pull ourselves up and struggle to have a better life. Nice song!!!!!



420 | Reviewer: jonette | 4/22/10

This song makes me feel happy as fuck!!! I love it,it's the shit. How true, it's cool for the goverment to put poor people in projects like animals and expect us to act civilized to one another. people don't like to live on top of one another. we need our space to, if people would be spaced out properly then maybe there would be less fighting, less killing. And we all know who controls the drug trade so how dare they lock up people for buying into the biggest money making scheme of all time. Gold Oil Drugs (GOD) to the goverment, a tool for globle control if you can't tax it then it's illegal. Social security cards are slave numbers were all slaves so get your goverment mug shots at the nearest DMV and smile.
that is why we thugs peace out!!!!



We$t$IDE fo lifeeee | Reviewer: We$t$ide fo lifeee | 3/25/10

Dis song is fuckin amazin. To anonymous.. Shut the fuck up nigguh remember tht black people did not come to America the white people brought us here. It's hard to get education when the fucking white people are racist bitches and prevent us from getting an education.

Great | Reviewer: Anonymous | 7/9/09

Good song, it definitely covers the reality of urban life for many.

To the anonymous commenter: I suggest that before you remark on the intellect of another individual you return to elementary school and learn the fundamental difference between "your" and "you're". Actually, improving your (proper usage!) entire grammatical structure would benefit you greatly.




Idiot | Reviewer: Anonymous | 1/5/09

Who gave you guns? Who gave you drug? You mean, I bought them right. You moron. Your a thug cause your and idiot. Why not do like every other minority that ever came to the usa and, oh yeah, get an education and a job. Quit using the same ol;d stupid excuse. If you want to be treated like a man, ACT LIKE ONE!
